Were You Catastrophically Injured?
Motorcyclists depend on their helmets and apparel to protect them from injuries if they are in a crash. There is no metal frame around them to absorb the impact. This limited protection means that the average motorcyclist is at a high risk of suffering a life-changing injury in a wreck.
We have helped motorcycle accident clients with a variety of injuries, such as:
- Back and spine injuries
- Head and brain injuries
- Broken bones
- Internal organ injuries
- Soft tissue damage, such as torn ligaments
What is Your Claim Worth?
The value of your motorcycle accident claim will largely depend on how the accident occurred and the severity of your injuries. The worse you have been injured, the more medical treatment you will require, which means the cost of your treatment will increase. This may mean the value of your case increases to ‘make you whole’ through civil justice.
Damages that add to the value of your case include:
- Medical costs
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Permanent disability
In a personal injury claim, liability is a legal term for fault or blame. The more liability you have assigned to you for your motorcycle accident, the less compensation you can recover from the defendant.
In California, a pure comparative negligence rule is used for liability and damage recoveries. Under this rule, your recovery is reduced directly by your percentage of liability in a trial. For example, if a jury determined that you were 25% liable for the wreck, then you can only collect 75% of your . This is why building a liability case effectively throughout all stages of the claim process is critical to obtaining fair compensation.
The evidence we can use to prove liability includes:
- Video footage, such as helmet cam footage or surveillance videos
- Police reports
- Eyewitness statements
- Accident scene evidence, such as skid marks and property damage
- Accident reconstruction evidence
